Sharing a 'labor of love' at Lehigh Valley Hospital

Pathway to Santa organizer marking final year

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - After being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2007, Bruce Smith underwent treatment at the Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg Infusion center.

Now cancer free, the 68-year-old Palmer Township resident organized "Pathway to Santa" eight years ago as a way to give back to the hospital and the patients it treats.

This year's event included performances from the Emmaus and Parkland high schools choruses, musical performances by Wilson Area High School and the Lehigh Valley Brass Ensemble and appearances from more than 15 mascots from the Lehigh Valley.

Since beginning the initiative, Smith has also raised more than $260,000 in gift cards for cancer patients. This marks the last year Smith will lead the event.
